His new movie Gone Girl opens in UK cinemas tomorrow (2 October) and features, in Ben’s own words, “some brief nudity”.

He says, “The penis is in there” and, urging his audience pay top dollar for a ticket, he assures us “it’s better in 3D”.

He’s quoted as saying that the film’s director David Fincher told him, “This is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It’s gotta be like in Europe, they just don’t give a shit about any of that stuff and they just play real people.”

But don’t set your sights up too high, so to speak. The Argo star told MTV News with a wink: “You should know it was very cold. It was a very cold set. It was freezing. It was sub-zero.”

Yeah, sure Ben, we understand.
